Now one COULD argue that in light of this era of extreme brewing, a nice, simply dry stout IS a crazy idea.

I am drinking Moylan's Dragoon Dry Irish Stout as we post.

I just brewed what I'm calling a "Nutella Stout" - a sweet stout base with cocoa powder, then aged on cacao nibs and bottled with hazelnut extract. It's only been in the fermenter two days and I'm already antsy to get to drinking it!

I brewed 5.3 gallons (20 L) of Irish coffee imperial stout with lactose, coffee and a bottle (26-oz) of Jameson whiskey. It came out quite well.

One of my favorite coffee drinks has both chocolate and cayenne and it's delicious...maybe the chocolate-habanero or mole stout, but add a little coffee?

I've been thinking about trying a chocolate persimmon stout. Persimmon pudding is one of my favorite southern foods.

Oyster stouts are a pretty common brew--a number of Irish bars in this area have one, and BJCP lists commercial examples as typical of the sweet stout category. I wouldn't classify them as crazy.

Sam Adams makes a pretty good one for Wellfleet every year. Harpoon's is decent. Rogue's Oyster Cloyster was really good, but they stopped making it.

(If you find yourself in the greater DC area, Fordham Brewery in Annapolis has a really nice one on tap; Gaffney's in Arlington used to have a pretty good one, too, but it had gone downhill last time I tried it)

Funny you should mention that...last year someone entered a straight-up dry stout and it was damn good, probably a 40 point beer. Since the scoresheet awards points for creativity though, it got hammered at the end.
